Ok, now that I got that out of the way! Hello there! I’m gonna take a moment and show off my new birthday present, cause I just got it today and it’s gorgeous and I have the bestest boyfriend in the whole wide world:

Isn’t it pretty?! White gold with 2 diamonds and a pink tourmaline. Ok, sorry, I’m excited and had to get that out of my system.

Here’s something for you! It’s a recipe that my dad wrote, a long time ago. I can’t vouch for if he created it himself or not, but I have cooked it and can vouch that it is delicious.

I preset, Spaghetti alla Carbonara! It’s a heart attack in a bowl, but super tasty.

ingredients
1 pound spaghetti
4 eggs
1/2 pound bacon
5 cloves of garlic
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
Oil
Salt
Pepper

directions

  1. Fill kettle with water, add 1 tbsp salt and put over high heat.
  2. When water comes to a boil, add spaghetti. Float a little oil on top to keep strands from sticking together.
  3. While water is boiling, chop bacon. Put in frying pan and place over low heat.
  4. When bacon is done, remove from heat and set aside.
  5. Peel and slice garlic; set aside.
  6. Cook spaghetti for 12-15 minues.
  7. About 5 minutes before spaghetti finishes, beat eggs with fork until they turn lemon yellow.
  8. Right before spaghetti is done, return bacon to low heat and add sliced garlic.
  9. Strain spaghetti and put in large bowl.
  10. Hold frying pan with bacon and garlic in one hand, and beaten eggs in the other. Pour them simultaneously (bacon grease and all) into the spaghetti while a second person stirs while you pour.
  11. Add parmesan cheese and stir in. Salt and pepper to taste.

Ok, I’ll see you in half an hour with another Something Yummy to make!
